Question: I have osteoarthritis in the spine and have put weight on, can Aqua Aerobics help?
Asked by nannyspecks
I have put weight on because of being inactive. I have a number of health issues, including osteoarthritis, high blood pressure,diabetes, high cholesterol and depression and I desperately want to lose weight. I had a back stabilization operation in 2006. The doctor has recommended Aqua Aerobics and swimming as well as other exercise. I need to find a programme that can help me, can anyone recommend something?
Can you help out?

Yes it will certainly help as exercising in the water doesn't put any added pressure on the joints so will be an easier way for you to exercise. It is also good that your doctor has given you the thumbs up too. Good luck with it and let us know how you progress.
